  • 1 Tbsp. instant coffee or espresso powder
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (may substitute coconut sugar for vegan option)
  • 1 Tbsp. hot water
  • 8 ounces non-dairy milk of choice (may substitute dairy milk, if desired), hot or cold


  1. Place instant coffee, honey, and water in a medium-sized bowl.
  2. Using a whisk or electric mixer on low speed, beat for 15-20 seconds until the coffee and honey dissolve.
  3. Increase the speed to high (or whip more vigorously if using a whisk) and continue to beat for 60-90 seconds (expect this to take longer if beating by hand depending on your speed and stamina) or until stiff peaks form.
  4. Pour your milk of choice into a glass, adding ice if desired, then top with the whipped coffee mixture and serve.
  5. Stir gently to combine the milk and the whipped coffee layers.
